METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 16, 1965 GAME:

Dean Hoffman
August 26, 2003
My first major league game with my dad. I was 8. The game ended and it was quite exciting to be in a big league stadium and have all the peanuts and crackerjacks my 8 yr. old stomach could handle!

After the game, I took my scorecard and yearbook (I still have the yearbook) and was ready to leave when my dad informed me that there was another game!

My reaction was "I WANT TO GO HOME"! He begged and bribed me to stay for a couple of innings so that he could see an "all-time" great pitcher pitching for the Mets. I relented after about 5 minutes and a promise of ice cream!

That pitcher was the great Warren Spahn! Who knew??

Example One
The Mets suck! They need to trade Smith and get somebody like Jones.
This comment is off-topic and will be removed. It has nothing to do with any specific game. But here's an acceptable alternative:

Example Two
The Mets suck! Smith made three errors in this game, and hit into a double play, and the Mets blew a 5-0 lead. They need to get rid of Smith and get somebody like Jones.
See the difference? Here you're getting the same point across, but it's in the proper context. We wouldn't consider this message to be off-topic, and we would let it remain.

We do appreciate anybody who takes the time to share their thoughts on our site, and we hate to remove anybody's postings. But if we didn't take steps to ensure that only on-topic messages were retained, The Ultimate Mets Database would become a confusing jumble of unrelated comments, and would thus be less enjoyable to visitors like you.

Thank you!
